INFORM Risk Index: Lack of physical connectivity

Understanding why and where humanitarian disasters are likely to occur is a fundamental step in saving lives and promoting sustainable development. The coping capacity dimension of the INFORM Risk Index (global risk assessment for humanitarian crises and disasters) measures the ability of a country to cope with disasters in terms of organized activities, infrastructure and governmental effort. In particular, the physical infrastructure component presented in this layer tries to assess both the accessibility and the redundancy of the systems, which are two crucial characteristics in a crisis situation. It addresses safe management of drinking water and sanitation services, including dimensions of accessibility, availability and quality. The risk score ranges from 0-10, where 10 is the highest risk.
